I have been spending the past few weeks debating what I actually want to do with my life. I was originally going to try majoring in Nursing but I don't know if that's what I'm meant to do. Basically, I think that I want to be a Child Life Specialist. If you don't know much about CLS, you can find out more here. One thing stays constant in these two careers: I want to work with kids with cancer.
I know it is one of the, if not the toughest, situations imaginable but I have been seriously touched by stories like Ronan's and Lucy's. Kids dying of cancer is NOT ok, kids having to deal with cancer at all is NOT ok. I am not equipped with the mind power to try and cure this ugly disease but I know that I have the compassion and love to help kids fight as long as they have to.
This is where my heart is. I know that with all of my being and I will not give up this desire to help these precious children.
